Mud Shark – Bonzo Did It


Mud Shark – Bonzo Did It
Self released – 2013
Rock, Stoner, Hard, Psych
Rated: ****

Holy crap. The amazing quality of the debut EP Bonzo Did It by the Danish foursome Mud Shark takes you completely by surprise. With incredible production values the four tracks on this diamond shimmer and shine with pure hard rocking bliss. They also vibrate and oscillate due to the chaotic jumpy nature of the tracks. Especially opening tune When You’re In Vain seems to be all over the place with mad outro's, quiet passages and insane interludes. But after a couple of spins, those off-key changes hook you in your fishy face. And then after the straightforward heavy rocker Line Of Fire there’s the third track As I Lie Awake. Which starts with emotional keys and show a completely different side of the Mud Shark. A bigger, grander and more submerged dangerous side. It has soul and shows depth and promises so much for the future. As does the closer which you should discover for yourself… So jump in the water and swim with the sharks…
